Supporting and bringing together linguistics communication projects.

LingComm Grants

Have a great idea for a linguistics communication project, but need a bit of money to get it off the ground? Looking to support emerging lingcomm projects? The 2022 LingComm Grants consist of ten $100 (USD) LingComm Startup Grants and one $500 (USD) LingComm Project Grant to support linguistics communication projects that bring linguistics to new audiences in engaging ways. Find out more about the grants and check out our 2020 grantee projects.

LingComm23 Conference

The International Conference on Linguistics Communication (#LingComm23) brings together lingcommers from a variety of backgrounds, including linguists who have developed skills in communicating with public audiences and communicators who have developed a “beat” related to language. February 6-10, 2023, online.


LingFest is a program of online linguistics events aimed at a general audience, taking place between Friday, 10 February and Friday, 17 February 2023. Just as a fringe festival compiles a list of independently-organized events on a particular theme, LingFest is an excuse for linguistics communicators to organize an online event, a way for fans to meet fellow linguistics enthusiasts (use #lingfest23), and a handy way to find out about more lingcommers who you might want to start following! 


Thinking of doing more lingcomm but not sure how to go about doing it? Looking to run a lingcomm training session? Check out our resources page for more advice and samples of linguistics communication.
